Process
Process for
making a
chemical
compound
Machine

plant or animal

Is your invention patentable?
NovelNovel
UsefulUseful
NonNon--obviousobvious
Your invention can only be patented if you satisfy the all the NUN criteria.
• Your invention is compared to anything that is
created in the past
• Not publicly disclosed in any form,
anywhere in the world
• If disclosed, it must not be more than 1 year
prior to the date of patent application
(also known as Prior Art in United States)
Novel
• Your invention must have
a useful purpose.
• Rejection on utility is not
very common.
• If so, present one of the
following:
– a working model (esp. for
medical inventions),
– testimony of experts, or
– test results.
Useful
Non-obviousness
• Toughest criteria to pass as it can be very
subjective
• Differences between your invention and prior art
to a skilled person with the working knowledge in
the relevant field
• Consider the following factors:
– Scope and content of prior art
– Level of ordinary skill in the art
– Differences between prior art and
claims at issue
That’s not all…
We have more to distress you….
Your invention must also be…
Credible
Don’t bother to prove that a time machine works.
Practical
If your invention involves crushed rocks of nano-size and
there is no machine that can produce that, your invention
is equally useless.
Patented by the inventor him/herself
Even the family members are not allowed to file for the
patent.
If your invention is…
known in U.S. before your date of invention
patented or described anywhere in a printed
publication ≥ 1 year before you file your application
already in use in U.S. ≥ 1 year before you file the
application
patented elsewhere before filing an application in U.S.
(unless the foreign application was filed ≤ 1 year
before the U.S. application)
Then, you should modify or reinvent your invention….
because your invention cannot be patented in U.S..
